The ganglionic eminence (GE) is a transient but conspicuous structure of the developing forebrain which not only gives rise to a large number of precursor neurons and glial cells for various structures of the forebrain, but in addition serves as an intermediate target for growing axons to the cerebral cortex. To investigate the roles of the highly polysialylated isoform of the neural cell adhesion molecule (PSA-NCAM) in cell migration and axonal growth within the GE and its neighbouring… CONTINUE READING
